CHCH Crafty Crafters

Sorry for the lack of posts the last week, Lily and I have been sick with colds so there wasn't alot of time for blogging and lets face it colds are not a little bit cute but a big old pain!  To brighten up our weekend
we headed out to the Swannanoa School Fair and I was blown away by not only how big it was but also at the craftiness I saw.  It has made me more inspired and determined to get an idea off the ground I have been thinking about for a while, after a few ideas bit the dust!
In Christchurch we have had a few markets pop up which is very exciting, its just trying to decide which ones to go to, here are some that are popping up in March, if anyone knows of any others please comment below.  Some of my fav stallholders at Swannanoa were:
Bubble and Squeak Clothing
Ameliorate Designs
Little Drop Design
Fabric Fixation
And my just a little bit cute find was this! I thought these were so cute I wanted to buy them all and put them in a fruit bowl! If you would like one the contact details on the tag are:
